I’ve prayed for you in particular that you not give in or give out.
When you have come through the time of testing,
turn to your companions and give them a fresh start.”
—Luke 22: 32 [Message]


A Time to Think … Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement. – C.S. Lewis

A Time to Act … Today is a good day to put aside your fear of failure and replace it with effort towards your goals. Start writing down what you truly want to do, and begin to work on these goals. Use baby steps at first so you don’t get overwhelmed and want to quit. Each day the fears will melt as you see God’s hand in your efforts!

A Time to Pray… Dear Jesus, why is it that I can focus so easily on my failures rather than the successes I have had in life? Help me to understand that the failures can strengthen me and give me a better foundation to try again, and again! Holy Spirit, be my daily reminder to abide in Christ and his strength as I work toward the goals God has for my life, AMEN.
